Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:27--> 00:00:38

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen Lama Sunday wa Sallim wa barik ala arctica or Asuka Muhammad, were early he was like a big mountain in America.

00:00:41--> 00:01:11

from God which Allah subhana wa Taala has made in combat and obligatory upon all of us is that as Muslims we love Allah subhanho wa Taala and we honor Him and we glorify Him subhanho wa Taala This is an integral part of each and every single person's email every single Muslims Eman. The love of Allah subhanho wa Taala is not optional knowledge, it's something that you have a choice over as a Muslim, it is something which you must do.

00:01:12--> 00:01:27

And everything therefore, the loss of Hannah who loves and honors is also something which we as Muslims on enough as a large village will says in the Quran, the the cover, may you have them share your law for India have been toppled along

00:01:28--> 00:01:29


00:01:31--> 00:02:14

and whosoever honors and sanctifies and glorifies the signs of a large religion that is from the piety of the hearts. So to glorify and to respect and to love and to honor that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has made from amongst the the pillars and from amongst the signs of this religion. It is in turn glorifying and honoring Allah subhana wa Tada. For example, the masjid, the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is a sign of this religion. It is one of those landmarks and one of those sacred places that Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed in this religion and that is why the people who come and they attach themselves to the masjid and they are the people of the masjid. They have a

00:02:14--> 00:02:56

great position in this religion. As a prophet Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said welcome your Linda home along with your Lindley Yeoman Allah in lovely law seven types of people will have the shade of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day that they will be no shade except his shade. From amongst those seven categories of people is rajul boohooman Lacan will Masjid A man was hot or a person whose heart is attached to the masjid. So therefore a person who is closely connected to the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala they have a great reward in Islam. Because there is a landmark it is a sign in Islam. It is one of the things that Allah subhana wa Taala has made secret, the Hajj

00:02:56--> 00:03:40

pilgrimage, the Hajj is one of the greatest signs of a loss of Hannah Montana, one of the apparent festivals of Islam, when millions of people gather together to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this verse that I quoted to you whosoever glorifies the signs of Allah, it is from the piety of their hearts. In the Quran, it is mentioned in Surah Hajj, in the context of Al Hajj. So therefore when a person goes and they go to the Kaaba, and they glorify the Kaaba and they honor the karma, not because the character is something that we worship directly, but rather because Allah subhana wa tada has made it a landmark in this religion, that is a sign of a person's glorification of a large

00:03:40--> 00:04:24

religion. And likewise from those things that are loss of Hannah what Allah has made from His signs, from his miracles, and it is an attribute of his, it is the Quran, the speech of Allah subhana wa tada to glorify, to love to honor and to respect the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is therefore an obligation upon every single Muslim. It is a sign of your Eman to love the honor and to respect the Koran and to honor the Koran and to want to come closer to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is a sign of a man. So much so that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the mean age learned in law he to Allah, economy, the Shabbat in Muslim harmony or an indeed from the

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

ways that you glorify Allah is by honoring and respecting the elderly Muslim, and the person who has memorized the Quran. The elderly Muslim is someone who for the past part of 30 4050 6070 years has worshipped Allah subhana wa tada to the extent that now that they are an old person, their hair has gone white, and their life has been dedicated to worshiping Allah azza wa jal. So we honor them because of what they have achieved during that span of their life. And we honor the person who has memorized the Quran because within them in their hearts in their chests, and their

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

bodies, they carry the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So by honoring them, you honor the loss of Hannah Montana. And there are many such examples of this. The point being that our religion

00:05:13--> 00:05:27

honors the symbols of Islam and respects and loves those symbols. So therefore as Muslims and is also incumbent upon us, that we show that same level of respect and honor and love for those symbols of Islam.

00:05:28--> 00:06:11

The Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala therefore the Quran, it is something that we love, and that is the most basic thing that you love and honor. But what does it mean to love and honor the Koran? It means that you uphold the Quran by reciting the Quran. And you love and honor the Quran by trying to understand the Quran. And what Allah subhana wa Taala is saying in the Quran. It means that you contemplate the meanings of the Quran to the best of your ability, not just that you simply read, nor that you just simply read the translation or even the Tafseer of the Quran. But it means to go a step further and to contemplate over those meanings. So for example, when a large zoologist says al

00:06:11--> 00:06:55

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. There is reading the Quran. To know its translation, All praise is due to Allah, Lord of all that exists, that is not understanding the verse, But Allah subhana wa Taala commands us in the Quran. From the right set of parameters upon us and from our relationship with the Quran is that we go a step beyond and contemplate over those meanings. What does it mean to praise Allah subhana wa Tada. And what does this term even mean praise of Allah. The word praise in English language is a well known word. But what does it mean? In this context, when it is speaking about Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet told us on a low it was tell him that Indeed Allah loves

00:06:55--> 00:07:38

to be praised, and that is why he praises himself in the Koran. So you have sutras in the Quran that at the very beginning they open with the praise of Allah like Surah Fatiha and you have other sources of the Quran like Surah Surah and Soraka have the end with the praise of Allah subhana wa Tada. And then you have in other sources of the Quran, we're in the midst of those verses, Allah subhana wa Taala praises himself. In fact, the people of gender when they enter into gender, the final call will be well our home and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen the rupees is due to Allah loadable that exists, but what does it mean to praise Allah subhana wa Tada. This is contemplation

00:07:38--> 00:08:04

of the Quran. So to recite it, to understand it to compliment the candidate to contemplate it, and then to implement its rulings and its meanings to be a person of the origin to be someone who embodies the teachings of the Quran. As our mother Ashura the law has said, when she was asked concerning the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she replied, can a Hulu or an his character was the

00:08:06--> 00:08:49

he was a walking, talking embodiment of the teachings of the Quran. He was someone when compass those meanings within the way that he would speak the way that he would deal with others, the way that he would interact and he would govern his life because that is what Allah subhana wa tada wants us to do from the Quran. This is from amongst the most basic rights that each and every single Muslim must apply. You don't have a choice regarding these issues. On Yamanaka, Yama, our profits on a low while he was selling will contain to a loss of Hannah, what about the people of this oma who abandon the Orion meaning that they didn't fulfill these issues that we mentioned? Either they

00:08:49--> 00:09:31

didn't recite the Quran? Or if they recited the Quran, they didn't understand what they were reciting? Or if they understood what they were reciting, they didn't contemplate over the meanings of what they were reciting or what they had read the meaning of the translation of, or if they knew all of that, then they fail to implement it. What color Rasulullah Robbie in Nepal Mita has ohada or Anna manjeera. Indeed, the prophet will see on the Day of Judgment, that indeed my people, abandoned or on my people, meaning my, my nation, meaning the Muslims, they abandon the Koran, people who read the Koran, but they don't understand the Quran, or if they understand the Koran, eras in penetrated

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

within the hearts, but if it has penetrated within them, they don't fulfill its obligations. They don't stay away from its prohibitions. They don't uphold its commandments, refer to me and own me but will kitabi what's gonna be bound? As the law says in the Quran, do you believe in some parts of this book, and you disbelieve in other parts, people who pick and choose what they want to implement from Islam, because it's easier it suits them or it fits into the narrative that they have.

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

And other people and other parts of the Oregon that they ignore, they exclude because it doesn't fit within their program and in their agenda. So Allah subhanho wa Taala warns against all of this

00:10:12--> 00:10:18

from the rulings of the Quran and from the most important issues concerning the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:19--> 00:11:04

is on is from the attributes of a large religion because the Quran is the speech of Allah and the speech of Allah is an attribute of Allah subhanho wa Taala a large religion in the Quran he calls it his speech. To me you have the foreigner color Mala. concerning those people who change the words and the speech of Allah azza wa jal on the last panel, Darla says, when I had to middle mush leakiness the john Rockefeller Jr, who had pious McCallum Allah. And if one of the disbelievers asks for safety, give them safety, quantum safety, so that they can hear the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning the Quran. The stone iron is the speech of Allah azza wa jal, it is from the

00:11:04--> 00:11:42

attributes of our Lord and creator subhanho wa Taala. Every single word in the Quran is something that Allah spoke with. There are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this they in and of themselves just simply for that reason, as something which deserved to be honored and glorified, to respect the origin because it is from the speech of Allah subhana wa tada is extremely important. It is from the words of Allah azza wa jal, as is all of the revelations of a loss of Hannah Montana, in the original form, the Torah and the Injeel. And the Psalms, all of them were the speech and the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:11:43--> 00:11:50

The speech of alaric xojo. Therefore the Quran is something that you must respect you must honor you must glorify

00:11:51--> 00:12:34

and you must respect it because Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran has told us a number of uses for it from the rulings of the Koran is that we believe the Torah is a Shiva. It is a cure, that the words of Allah azzawajal can kill. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the Hadith in Bukhari, concerning that group of people who went to on a journey. And as they were on a journey, they came across a town. And they asked those people for Hospitality but they refused, as was the custom of the people before that, if they traveled, when there were no hotels and so on, they would ask the people of a town to give them hospitality, food and shelter. Those people refused. So the

00:12:34--> 00:12:39

companions the Muslims, they carried on and they stayed in an area not too far away.

00:12:40--> 00:13:24

The leader of that town that they had just passed, was bitten by an insect. And he was in extreme pain. So a man came to the Muslims from the town and he said, that I will lead I was stung today, does anyone from amongst you have an incantation or some medicine that they can give? One of the companion said I do. But you are a people who when we asked you for a favor, we ask you for hospitality, you refused. So now that you want something from us, if what I do works, then you must give us such a number of sheep in return. The man agreed, the companion went to this man who was a disbeliever and this shows you the power of the Quran when it comes from a believing and pious

00:13:24--> 00:14:08

heart, the power and impact of the Quran he recited Surah Al Fatiha over that man, that leader and he was cured. So he took the sheep. The companions are with him said don't do anything with the sheep until we returned to Medina. And we asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concerning this, they returned to Medina, and they told the apostle Solomon incident and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to this man who recited Fatiha and what made you know that our Fatiha is a cure? Take the sheep and distributed amongst yourselves and give me a share as well. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shows that the Quran is a cure. So from the ways that we honor the Quran

00:14:08--> 00:14:52

and from the way that we implement the Quran, is by reciting the Quran over our songs over our families over our children. The profits on a low while he was selling would recite over his two grandsons, and hasn't seen Robbie Allahumma he would recite over them the Tula soldiers of the orange the MA with a tin alfalah and a nurse, he would recite over them. The Quran is not only a cure, but it is a protection as well. The Prophet told us on a low while he was cillum concerning verses like ayatul kursi Surah Surah on a Friday Surah mulk before you go to sleep every night they protect you from shapen or from the trials of the gel and so on and so forth. Therefore, the Quran

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

is something which is extremely powerful, but only when it is used in its correct way. Only when it comes from a

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

person who is strong in a man who has certainty that these are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they will do as Alonzo which will promise that they will do. Often we recite the Quran, but we find that it has very little impact within our hearts. Very little difference that it makes within our hearts. Sometimes when were reciting sometimes we hear the Quran being recited in Ramadan. Many of us read the Quran from cover to cover, we hear it being recited from cover to cover in the Torah with prayer. Very few people, or maybe some people don't come out of Ramadan, or from that experience with much more than they went into it. And this is because there is a disconnect here,

00:15:41--> 00:16:21

from the rights of the Koran, and from the rulings concerning the Koran is that it is not just simply a matter of recitation, nor is it simply a matter of how much you can recite, or how quickly you can finish the recitation of the whole Koran. But more importantly, it is about how much you understand a new contemplate companions like I'm delighted mahabis rhodiola one whom and others from amongst them would say that we would rather recite one surah and contemplate it than finished the whole or and with that contemplation. You can read the whole Quran even though as we know, from what is authentically reported from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam that every word of the Quran

00:16:21--> 00:17:04

has 10 rewards. And Islamism is not a word. But Elif is a word Nam is a word meme is a word. Every word of the Koran has 10 rewards. Therefore, to finish the errand is rewarding. And it is something which has a great deal of reward attached to it, because of how many words there are in the Quran. Even so, the position of many of the companions was that they would rather recite a smaller portion of the iron, but understand and contemplate and take their time, so that the message of the enemy penetrate within them, then recite a vast amount of the Koran without thinking or contemplating or reflecting over the Quran. From amongst the companions were those who said that I would rather spend

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

a night awake and recite just surah two

00:17:08--> 00:17:33

and Surah Al are the two of the smallest soldiers of the iron, but reflect over them and read them over and over again. Then finished the whole Quran with our understanding. We know from some Hadith that our Prophet son alone while he was selling them, he recited a single verse the whole night in prayer. The whole night prayer Mylene repeating the single verse into the home for in the home rebadow went up

00:17:34--> 00:18:16

until I Cesar Hakeem our life you punish them, then they are your slaves. And if you forgive them, then you are the one who is all mighty all wise, a whole night repeating the single verse of the Quran. Others like Abdullah bin Amato, the Allahu anhu man others from amongst the companions used to say that it took them 10 years to finish Oracle Baccarat. It's memorization, but along with understanding this was the way of the companions because it is not just about reciting the Quran, but loving the Koran and honoring the Quran is about coming closer to the connecting to the Quran. I have started with these issues before going into many of the issues. Do you need Waldo to recite the

00:18:16--> 00:18:54

Quran to touch the Quran? What do you do with the Quran? In the prayer must you recite Surah Fatiha behind the Imam and so on. Because sometimes we go into these issues, which even though they are important, they are in many ways secondary secondary to the greater issue at hand. And that is the for us. And more importantly for our children. We need to first instill the love of the Quran. Because if the love of the Quran is embedded within you ingrained within you, and you understand the power of the Quran, and how to how to interact with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala how to contemplate over the verses of the Quran, then all of these things I think would come automatically.

00:18:55--> 00:19:33

The fact that you respect the URL would mean that you honor the physical copy of the order and the fact that you contemplate the URL and understand the beauty of the Quran would make sure that you would make room for example, before you touch the Quran and so on and so forth. It is only those people who focus on these types of issues, but then they neglect the greater purpose of the the contemplation of the order and understanding of the origin that they find that there is a disconnect a problem where even though the following one of these rulings, the Quran has little to no impact upon the heart, the or and the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala as a lot told, told us in the

00:19:33--> 00:20:00

Quran, or tells us in the Quran. The speech of a large region is so powerful, that even an inanimate object and objects as or a creation as great and a sturdy and as strong as a mountain would crumble out of the field of a large soldier because of the words of the Quran. lowen Zelda Hayden or Anna Anna jevelin Lara Ada Hashimoto Satya minha Shatila. If this question

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

Which will be revealed upon a mountain, then it would crumble and turn into dust out of the fear of loss of Hannah Montana. If there is the book of Allah the Quran, then what about our hearts? When the Quran is recited to us, when we read the Quran ourselves, What impact does it have? If a mountain would crumble out of dust? Because of the words of the Quran, then what about our hearts? We will claim to believe in Allah and we do inshallah believe in Allah and the prophet of seldom in the Quran and we love Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Quran, what impact does it have upon our hearts? When you have this level inshallah within you ingrained within you,

00:20:42--> 00:21:08

then there are a number of other rulings concerning respecting and honoring the Quran. From amongst those rulings is the ruling of reciting the Quran and whether you need without recite the Quran, it is the opinion of the vast majority of the scholars. In fact, some of the scholars said that there is a consensus that if you have no Budo it is allowed for you to recite the Quran.

00:21:09--> 00:21:46

When we say that you don't have we don't we mean that you are in a mindless state of ritual impurity. There are two states of ritual impurity minor and major, minor ritual impurity is the one that you need to do for and major ritual impurity is what you need to make a wholesome ritual bath, in order to live that state of impurity. If you are in a minor state of ritual impurity, and you wish to recite the Quran, what does that mean recite the Quran, it means that you don't touch the Quran, you're either reciting from memory or you're not touching a physical copy of the Quran, meaning that you have it in your iPad, on a screen in front of you. It's

00:21:47--> 00:22:01

not physical and physical form of the aura, it is allowed for you to recite because our mother Irish or the Allahu anhu told us that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can call Allah Allah gymea ofI Jamia

00:22:02--> 00:22:30

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would remember Allah in every situation, he would remember a lot in every situation. So that includes in Waldo and outside of model includes when he would wake up and he wouldn't have Well no, he will still remember Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because from the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal from the greatest of the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the recitation of the Quran.

00:22:32--> 00:22:36

So if that is the case with regards to touching or reading the Quran,

00:22:37--> 00:23:17

in a minor state of ritual impurity, then what about a major state of ritual impurity, a person needs to meet Muslim either because of marital relations, or, for example, a sister who's on her monthly cycle, it is allowed is it allowed for them to recite the Quran again without touching, simply recite from memory, or from in some other way, shape or form, is it allowed for them to recite the Quran, in that state of major ritual impurity? This is an issue of difference of opinion amongst the spouse. And the strongest opinion Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best is that it is allowed for the woman on her monthly cycle to do so. But not allowed for any one man or woman to do

00:23:17--> 00:24:03

so if it is as a result of marital relations. There is a difference between the two, a woman who is in a state of her monthly bleeding. Number one, she doesn't have a choice. It's something which comes upon her, and she doesn't have a choice as to when and how to remove it, she can only make awesome once that period has elapsed before that, even if she was, to me also it wouldn't benefit from a ritual point of view. So therefore, the scholars said that this person, the woman in this state, it is allowed for her to read the Quran from memory or to read the Quran from for example, an iPad or from some other type of electronic format, it is allowed for her to read the Quran. However,

00:24:03--> 00:24:44

as for the person who is in a major state of ritual impurity, as a result of marital relations, then for them it is not allowed until they make Muslim. Why because this person has a choice and has the ability to meet also. So therefore, once they've made Watson The name is allowed for them to recite the Quran. And when we say the Quran, we're speaking exclusively about the Quran, not about the general outcome that you would make when you wake up or before you go to sleep. Or when you go into the bathroom or come out or when you're eating or after you finish eating or when you step inside or outside of your house. We're speaking about the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And perhaps this is

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

a good time to define the meaning of the Quran. In terms of what is the physical form of the Quran, the Quran is considered to be what is between the two covers fully in Arabic That is considered to be the Quran. And this was

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

come later on. But the Quran is basically what we have the general copies of the Quran that are completely in Arabic from cover to cover, they may have some pages at the beginning introductions, something at the end like an index and so on. But that that is the physical form of the Quran in Arabic, it is known as the most half as known as the Muslim. When it comes to reading the Koran, you either read the Quran from memory, or you read the Koran on an iPad or an iPhone or some computer screen or something else, or you read the Koran from a physical book from the must have from the physical origin itself. Is it allowed to touch the arm without being in a state of war? This is also

00:25:44--> 00:25:54

an issue of difference of opinion amongst the scholars. And the strongest opinion Allah knows best is that it is a condition that you must be in a state of war to touch the Koran.

00:25:56--> 00:26:20

There are many evidences for this back and forth back and forth from amongst those evidences is the statement of loss of Hannah Montana lawyer Mr. Elwell motoharu. None touched this book except those who are pure. So therefore, to be in a state of purity is something which is greatly recommended, if not, an obligation is an obligation

00:26:21--> 00:27:00

to touch the physical parameters. So that is the Quran that is all in Arabic. If a person doesn't have a state of war, what can they do? Number one, either they go and make withdrawal. or number two, they touched upon arm with a cloth or something else a glove or something else. That doesn't mean that they are physically touching the Quran. They have something between them and the Quran. For example, if you don't have the state of Waldo, and you find that, for example, someone in your house accidentally dropped the Puranas on the floor, or is, for example, somewhere where it might get damaged, or it's on the table, but you have children who are paying with pingtan so on, and the

00:27:00--> 00:27:31

Orion is there, and he may get damaged, may get ripped, something may happen to it. Even though you're not in the state of Mordor, then now you would go and find something to touch the man with a glove, a cloth, a scarf something to pick up the Koran and put it somewhere safe. Even if you couldn't find anything in this situation, where you think that the Quran will come to harm, you will still pick it up, even without the state of Ohio because now you're preventing a greater harm. So therefore there is the understanding of touching the Quran.

00:27:32--> 00:27:45

Is there a lot for children to touch the Quran, obviously, a child most likely won't be in the state of Bordeaux and we're speaking about children of the ages of 56789 the age group, the scholars say that it is allowed for them to touch the Quran without

00:27:46--> 00:28:03

especially if it is for the purposes of learning of education. Because if you tell them that they can't touch the Quran, except with Waldo, and your child doesn't make Waldo until the age of eight or nine or 10. Then all of that time period, they have been distanced from the Quran from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:28:04--> 00:28:47

Rather, instead what we want to do is cultivate the love of the Quran within our children. So therefore for them to touch the Koran, it is an exception to the rule. That is the Quran. The Quran is everything which is in Arabic, anything which is in Arabic, for example, the translation of the Quran, for example, a book of Hadith, for example, a book of the seal, a book of serum, any other Islamic book that has verses of the Quran in it, do you need the widow in order to touch those books, the stronger opinion is no and Allah knows best because it is not the Quran. So the Quran is everything which is in Arabic, the translation of the art is not the Quran, the translation that we

00:28:47--> 00:29:32

have the English translation all those Somali any language, the translation of the Quran is not considered to be the Quran. If you read the English translation or praise is due to a law load of one that exists, you don't get 10 rewards for each and every single word doesn't work like that. Rather what we have is the translation of the meanings of the Quran. It is a person, a human like me and you meaning that they have human weaknesses, they make mistakes, because that is part of human nature. They to the best of their ability have translated for you the meanings of the Quran, the meanings of what Allah subhana wa Taala has said, It is not a direct translation of the Quran.

00:29:32--> 00:29:59

Because the Quran is unique. There is no other Koran except the Quran in Arabic and no other language can come close to the eloquence of what Allah subhana wa Taala has said. Therefore, it is impossible to translate the origin word for word. There is no translation of the Quran, but rather what we have is a translation of the meanings of the Quran. And that's why certain copies certain dishes have mistakes in them, whether it's mistakes in RP

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

Whether it's mistakes misunderstanding the Arabic eloquence or something else, they have mistakes in them, because there is a translation of the meanings of the Quran. Therefore to touch those books without Waldo, it is something which is allowed

00:30:15--> 00:30:25

a number of other things regarding the Quran and especially in terms of respecting the Quran, to kiss Torah, or to wrap up the Quran, what is the meaning of these types of issues?

00:30:26--> 00:31:06

It is important to understand and to know that from our religion, it is to respect the Quran as I said at the beginning to respect and honor the Quran is a part of our religion. Therefore, if a person respects the plan by placing it somewhere safe, that is something good. If a person feels that they have to wrap it up to keep it safe, for whatever reason, that is something good. The problem comes is when we wrap it up so tight, that it doesn't get open again until Ramadan, we place it on such a high shelf that we will look at it until Ramadan. That is not the purpose of the Koran. So therefore, to keep it safe is different from keeping it away in a safe place that we don't need

00:31:06--> 00:31:09

to touch for a number of months throughout the year.

00:31:10--> 00:31:47

Like points from respecting the Quran, is not too pleased upon on the floor if there's no need to do so. Even though I don't know of any Hadith, forbidding the Quran being on the floor, pages of the Quran being on the floor, nor do I know of any Hadith in which the professor minister actually kissed the Quran or the pages during his time that the Quran was inscribed upon all the parchment that they would have in the leather and so on. That they will write the verses of the Quran. I don't know of any Hadith, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or even his companions would kiss them. However, now that we have the Quran to place it on the ground, simply because there is a place

00:31:47--> 00:32:25

where people walk, simply because it's a place where you're more likely to have things which are impure, it is more likely that you will have on the ground things which are impure, especially if you have children and so on in your house. It is common sense not to place the Koran on the floor. However, if someone needs to out of necessity, to the best of my knowledge that is not harmful. It's not haram to do. So. For example, if a person is praying, and they have the Quran open, they are reading an optional prayer beyond mouline and they have the Quran open and they're reciting. And we go into search the Quran touches the ground, it's allowed. I don't think that it is haram. If a

00:32:25--> 00:33:06

person needs to put the Koran down, for example, once they're praying, something which is allowed, but as a general rule of thumb, it is not something which should be encouraged, nor something that someone should just simply do for the sake of doing it. Our teachers when I was studying in Medina, they wouldn't allow in the mosque of the prophets on the lower lingual seldom people to put down books of Islam and Hadith on the ground. Because they consider it disrespectful. Not that it's haram because it's not Haram. There's no howdy saying that it's Haram. But from the respect that you have, rarely Colombia you're out of them shut up Sharia law, Vina Hammond law to sanctify and glorify and

00:33:06--> 00:33:10

respect the signs of a law, it is from the piety of the hearts.

00:33:11--> 00:33:24

Likewise, from the rulings with regards to the Quran, to three things in particular that I want to mention. inshallah, before we conclude number one, reciting in the prayer,

00:33:25--> 00:34:07

recitation of the Quran in the prayer is something which is an obligate obligation. So therefore to know from the Quran, that which fulfills this obligation is an obligation upon us. Every single Muslim must know from the Quran, that which they need to know in order to live their lives as a Muslim in your prayer in your Salah. masala is invalid until you recite Surah Fatiha. So therefore, you must know Surah Fatiha it is highly recommended that you know a number of other suitors because the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that he would recite sutras after Surah Fatiha especially in the first two records of a prayer that had more than two records. And sometimes

00:34:07--> 00:34:49

even in the last record or two records, he would recite an extra surah. So therefore to know that much of the Quran, it is an obligation which is upon you. That is something that each and every single Muslim was no bro so in the Salah. It is the opinion of many of the scholars and nerds the stronger opinion Allah knows best that you must recite Surah Fatiha even behind the Imam, even if the email was sent locally, and we said sort of fancy holiday in federal, in Missouri, in Russia, in Jamaica in taraweeh. Any point in which the email was sent aloud, and you recite Surah Fatiha, the stronger opinion is and a lot is best that you must also resigned after him. So when he finishes his

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

Surah Fatiha. When the people say mean you recite Surah Fatiha again from the beginning as quickly as you can. Because our Prophet told us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

limb la sala turnamen Lamia, Krabi, fatty Hatton kita. There is no prayer for the one who doesn't recite Surah Fatiha.

00:35:09--> 00:35:52

And that's generally Hadith, there's no prayer for the one who doesn't recite he didn't say, who doesn't recite it unless the Imam was reciting, or in congregational prayer. For us, it was a general general Hadeeth. So therefore, we cite Surah Fatiha behind the Imam is an obligation from the rulings of the poor and that we must understand also is such that to allow the prostration of recitation, those places in the corner, where you come across the time, when you recite a verse, you must go into frustration. These prostrations are highly recommended, they are not an obligation is reported from companions like Ramadan, the 11, that sometimes when they would lead the prayer, and

00:35:52--> 00:36:11

they would come across a verse in which there was a frustration, we would make the frustration, and at other times, they would leave the frustration to show the other people that it is something which is only highly recommended, meaning the response something which is an obligation, but generally speaking, you make the frustration,

00:36:12--> 00:36:51

that prostration, though, is something which isn't the prayer does not the prayer, it is simply essentially that that you make, and then you get up. So therefore, it is not the prayer. It is not the prayer. And therefore the stronger opinion is an Illinois best that the conditions of the prayer also do not fall upon this type of search. Meaning that you don't need to necessarily face the problem. So if you're somebody you don't know where the Qibla is, you recite it from memory, you come across a search that you want to prostrate, you don't have to go and face the problem. It is better to face the problem, if you know where the problem is. But it is not a condition because it

00:36:51--> 00:37:18

is not prayer. If you're reciting from memory, and you're not a mystery to Waldo, and you come across a verse of frustration, it is allowed for you to prostrate with that widow. Because again, it is not the prayer. So therefore the conditions of the prayer do not fall into this. The final issue that I want to mention Charlotte before we conclude is what do we do with brands that are owned, that are ripped, that are damaged, they need disposing of.

00:37:19--> 00:38:04

There are two ways that you can dispose of them that are mentioned by this follows. The first is to bury them somewhere clean, and somewhere that no one will go a part of, for example, a garden in your house or somewhere else where no one will go, they won't be dug up. It's not a place that people frequent or visit and to bury them deep and leave them there. That is the first way. And the second way is to burn it. The second way is to burn it both of these methods have been mentioned by the scholars of Islam. The burning method is something which is taken from Earth man or the alarm, the winner of the Allahu anhu and he was the halifa. And he combined the UI compiled into a single

00:38:04--> 00:38:32

neuron when he took all of those different passages. And he made a standardized version of the Koran that then he sent to all of the Muslim lands. He ordered that every other copy of the Quran that people had just been writing themselves or someone who had just heard a verse had just simply written down or any other portions that existed of the Quran that they be banked that is how we dispose of them. So for that reason, some of the scholars said that it is better to burn under the said that it is better to

00:38:34--> 00:38:34


00:38:36--> 00:38:37


00:38:38--> 00:39:18

and other scholars like in modern times like schefflera siemian Rahim Allah tala, he said there is allowed to shred. If you have one of those people shredders that shreds it to such a degree, that it is no longer possible to make out the words means it is completely destroyed. Even when you burn By the way, you must ensure that it is burn until none of the words are legible. They are completely ashes. Don't burn a page of the Koran and the pages watched from the sides or as crumbled up, but you can still make three four or five words or a verse here and there, you can still read it and make out a must be banned completely. Or you must be very deeply completely or if it's going to be

00:39:18--> 00:39:53

shredded, as was the opinion of Shannon lithiumion Rahim Allah, then it is shredded completely. These are a number of rules concerning the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. There are many others as well that I haven't mentioned. Because I think that the most important thing that we take away from this lecture is not so much the do's and the don'ts, the hurdles and harems of how to touch the phone and when and how and where. But rather more importantly than this is fulfilling the main objectives of the Quran, those obligations because they too are rulings that a large soldier has placed upon us and that is to ensure that the book of Allah Subhana Allah is something we honor

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

within our hearts by reciting memorizing, contemplating and understanding and implementing his teachings that will allow us

00:40:00--> 00:40:00


00:40:01--> 00:40:06

Mohammed's early he will be enjoying if anyone has any questions I can take a couple of ways we can.

00:40:27--> 00:41:06

So what is the ruling of giving a copy of the Quran to a non Muslim? If the copy of the Quran that you're going to give is a translation, then there is no issue because as we said, the translation of the Quran is not a con. And most likely what you would give to a non Muslim is a translation of the Quran, the actual physical copy of the Quran that is in Arabic, because of the rulings of judo and so on that we mentioned, this is where the difference of opinion exists. And those scholars who would say that they need to be in a state of impurity, like what the system or model, or the Allahu anhu made him do before he accepted Islam, that she made him take a Muslim before he could touch the

00:41:06--> 00:41:21

Koran. This also is a evidence to support the ruling of touching the Quran in the state of Buddha. However, I think practically speaking, the most likely scenario is that you would give them a translation of the Quran in which there is I don't think any difference of opinion or any doubt.

00:41:28--> 00:41:32

I think also if you are going to you mean to give to a non Muslim?

00:41:34--> 00:41:36

I think the translation is fine to touch with a widow.

00:41:37--> 00:41:39

Even if it has our became the

00:41:40--> 00:41:41


00:41:49--> 00:42:07

How often should you finish the recitation of the Quran? There is no Hadith to the best of my knowledge that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this is the minimum in which you should recite the Quran. Some of the scholars said that it is seven days Some said 14 Some said 30 like a month, some said 40 days these are opinions that exist.

00:42:08--> 00:42:43

In terms of the recitation of the Quran. The only Hadith is concerning the minimum, meaning how quickly can you finish the Quran, and that is the hadith of Jibril the laquan when he wants you to finish the Quran every single day. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if memory serves me correctly said to him don't do in less than three days. Because to do so would mean that you don't understand what you're reciting. As I said, the vast majority of the companions wouldn't even consider that to be too fast, but rather, they would like to take longer. And that doesn't mean that you it doesn't mean that you don't recite the Quran was much of the Quran as you can. But a portion

00:42:43--> 00:42:50

of the plan that you recite is something that you should understand and contemplate over something that you should connect with as opposed to simply reciting.

00:43:10--> 00:43:12

Yeah, yeah.

00:43:16--> 00:43:19

Yeah, so the most the hardcopy, you can't touch without Budo.

00:43:21--> 00:43:26

So the same would apply if that's the minus state of impurity to the major state of impurity, obviously, is the same.

00:43:31--> 00:43:31


00:43:46--> 00:43:49

Because what you have in your phone is not the Quran.

00:43:51--> 00:44:23

It's not the physical copy of the Quran. It's an application that when you open it, you have pages of the Quran. That's why for example, if it was the Quran, you wouldn't be allowed to take your phone into the bathroom. Not allowed to take the phone into the toilet, right? So therefore, you wouldn't be allowed to take your phone, you'd have to leave it outside every way you went to the bathroom, you would have to leave it outside. But it's not a copy of the Quran. It is an application or it's a website that is held on some third party cloud device somewhere that you access. So therefore is different from the debrief. You had a physical copy of the Quran. Then obviously if you

00:44:23--> 00:44:25

went into the bathroom, you couldn't take into the bathroom.

00:44:28--> 00:44:29

Okay, so

00:44:30--> 00:44:31

Mohammed rather early, he was
